  • Contemporary Stained Glass Front Door
    Contemporary and bright in style these stained glass windows were a joy to make I love designing within a patchwork you may have noticed and when my clients said this is what they wanted me to do I was thrilled The scheme starts off with quiet colours and tones in the left hand panel and moves through to the bright rubies through the door panel and into the panel on the right The two smaller stained glass windows are encapsulated into sealed units I have acid etched and silver stained the glass in areas and some pieces I have kiln formed myself with both colour and texture The whole window has so much colour movement and vibrancy in that there is something to see at every time of day Previous Stained Glass Index Next Home My Portfolio Commission Glass Glass Courses Glass Repair About Us Links Contact Amanda Winfield Abinger Stained Glass Abinger Hammer Nr Dorking Surrey UK 01306 730617 UK Designers and manufacturers of traditional and contemporary stained glass Stained Glass Repairs If you would like to visit us please phone or email first to make an appointment and for directions Member of The British Society of Master Glass

  • Stained Glass Window at St Martins C of E Primary School,
    the stained glass window is made in the traditional way using cutting painting and firing to produce the detail It depicts the houses of the school through the seasons Ranmore in winter Box Hill in Autumn Bury Hill in summer and Leith Hill in spring On this journey we also see some local flora and fauna harvest mice cling to ears of corn a bee orchid grows upwards on the left and we see Roman snails a feature of walks in the Surrey Hills and spotted by many a local child The cross is woven into the design of the stained glass implying the way in which the Christian faith is woven into the lives of the children at St Martins The inscription at the top of the stained glass is the schools vision statement Inspiring children to be the best they can be This reflects the very positive nurturing and learning environment provided by St Martins C of E Primary School The wonderful border was created with glass fusing techniques The children were asked to provide pictures of anything that inspired them To draw or paint something they loved These were then faithfully and painstakingly reproduced in fused glass by Mannon Lloyd another parent and artist working with me at Abinger Stained Glass I then leaded the stained glass window together and cemented it in the traditional way The stained glass was left to sit for 3 weeks to allow the cement between the leads to dry before we encapsulated it into a unit of toughened glass The leaded central part of the window The window is surrounded by fused glass panels designed by the pupils Close up of a fused glass panel The window under construction Previous Stained Glass Index Next Home My Portfolio Commission Glass Glass Courses
